I could not have been more excited about becoming Mariah and Taylor’s Wedding Photographer! I absolutely loved these two from the time I first talked to Mariah on the phone to our coffee meet and greet! Mariah said she found me on instagram a year ago and followed along ever since! She said she wanted stunning photos that she would still love fifty years from now and want to show to her grandkids! I just knew we’d be a perfect fit! And then she came to the engagement session in a long, flowy vintage pink dress and that confirmed it even further, haha!
Mariah and Taylor met exactly 4 years ago while she was in town visiting her friend Kristina! Kristina suggested meeting up with some friends. That was the first time she met Taylor! Then Kristina had a birthday party that was at her friend and Taylor’s apartment. As fate would have it, they met again that evening and have been inseparable ever since! My favorite thing about this couple was when Mariah told me that Taylor drove 4 hours to her for their first date while she was in grad school! Isn’t that just the sweetest?!
Taylor proposed while on vacation to Newport Beach, California! (which is coincidentally where I got married!) They went to dinner at a really nice restaurant where Mariah was certain he would propose! But then he didn’t. After walking back to the beach house after dinner, Taylor suggested they walk by the ocean! Thank goodness Mariah still agreed to join him because right there…Taylor got down on one knee and proposed!
